Frustrated by The Crazies

Thanks, Mompetition, for pointing this one out. I thought I was done with Blossom's bullshit, but she keeps shoveling it onto the Internetz:

First, read THIS STEAMING PILE

Then, read THIS AWESOME PIECE OF BLOGGY GOODNESS

Here's my comment on Valerie's post:

All I could think when reading her goddamn awful post was that there is a difference between letting your children learn at their own pace, and letting them learn at YOUR pace. She said in her first blog about being an attachment parent that she believes in "wearing" your children - as often as possible, as much as possible. 

Common sense (as well as my degree in psychology) suggests to me that perhaps carrying your child around everywhere is the reason he didn't walk until he was 17 months old. Or roll over until he was a year old. 

GAH! I hate extreme parenting!!!! I believe in letting kids be kids while teaching them the things they need to know in order to be good, responsible, independent adults. I just can't imagine purposely hindering my kid's development and then justifying that hindrance - calling it child-centered anything!

The balls! The BALLS OF BLOSSOM!!!

Head -> desk *banging*

Not that I like to berate others' parenting styles, but WTF is she talking about? Developmental milestones ensure everything is alright with your child, and help doctors/parents spot potential problems before they become problems. To completely ignore all measurements of development is just negligent. Should I sit back and hope that Monkey pays attention in school, learns to interact well with peers, and doesn't grow up to be a co-dependent, self-loathing, psychopathic moron? 'Cuz that's what she's likely to get.

See, I totally didn't get the "blossom" references in Motherhood WTF. I thought she was just some random blogger mom who was pathetic. Thanks for enlightening me. I obviously haven't been around long enough!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am going to add your link! I will be back to visit.
